Synopsis

Investigative writing-from exposes and immersion journalism to political and business reporting-is an American tradition that has come into its own, with authors such as Barbara Ehrenreich, Tracy Kidder, William Langwiesche, and Samantha Power regularly rousing critical acclaim, and claiming spots on best-seller lists. Often controversial, and written by some of our best writers, these are generally titles with high visibility in the media and high appeal to readers. Take a closer look at more than 500 current and classic examples of investigative writing with this guide that describes and organizes titles according to popular subgenres and themes. The author provides descriptive annotations, lists of subjects, fiction and nonfiction read-alikes, and more. An essential guide for readers' advisors and reference librarians, this is also an important resource for libraries that serve journalism programs.

SARAH STATZ CORDS has worked in an engineering library and at the reference desk in a public library, is the author of the nonfiction lit blog Citizen Reader, and is currently associate editor of the Readers' Advisor Online blog.
